From the background to the main stage, Myshel will be live April 9th and event proceeds will benefit WO Smith and the YWCA Weaver Domestic Violence Center
Nashville, TN (March 14, 2012)--There are few artists with the ability to create music from the soul. In a world where lyrics and rhythms are engineered to be commercially appealing, but lack depth, the colorful sounds of Myshel are considered a unique gift.
A native of Kentucky, Myshel traveled abroad with her missionary parents, gaining an eclectic musical influence as she perfected her craft while performing on stages in El Salvador, Venezuela, Johannesburg and Ghana. The exposure to diverse cultures allowed Myshel to cultivate an appreciation for varied genres of music. Her experience singing on tour with American Idol’s Mandisa as well as sharing the stage with Grammy Award nominated singers, Tamia and Kelly Price, positioned Myshel for the release of her solo effort.
On April 9, 2012 at 7pm in the legendary Franklin Theater, Myshel prepares for the release of her highly anticipated album, Relentless, with a concert and live DVD recording event, which will also benefit the W.O. Smith Music School and YWCA Weaver Domestic Violence Center. Excited about the partnership, the former Miss Tennessee State University understands the importance of community, and her actions prove the commitment to her art goes beyond the surface, saying, “Music is too powerful. It has to say something and speak life.”
A portion of proceeds from all of the Relentless albums pre-ordered the evening of the event, will speak life into the causes of both charitable organizations. The W.O. Music School provides music lessons for the children of low income families in Nashville, Tennessee and the YWCA Weaver Domestic Violence Center is a haven of safety for women; serving as a beacon of light to the women that use their services, Myshel hopes to heighten awareness for the mission of both organizations as well as rally financial support from the community.
Her fans and new listeners are in for a surprise, Myshel says Relentless includes, “A bit of the unexpected.” The effort places a spotlight on her soulful voice that bursts through urban infused pop music that is also spiked with rock. With plans for a visually stunning show, the Live DVD recording will feature production from Ken Gay of LMG Studios, whose most recent credits include work on the 2012 Super Bowl Half-Time. In addition to a captivating program, the concert will offer a preview of Relentless, scheduled to release on May 15.
This event is being sponsored by the Cupcake Collection, the W.O. Smith Music School, Nashville YWCA Weaver Domestic Abuse Center, Swetts Smoke House, Laserderm Med Spa, and Jacqueline’s Bridal.
